Basic Drawing: A Portrait with pencil and paper

(May, 28th, 2013)

There are many ways to draw a portrait, but I wanted to put some information and links here that would give a basic introduction to portrait drawing. Some people have questions how to start? They may be overwhelmed by the whole idea and not know a method or set of steps by which they might break down the process of drawing. We can easily recognize the face of a subject and we may know instinctively what is a good drawing, but somewhere in the middle of drawing it is very easy to get hung up and lose track of the whole picture and focus on some non-essential detail. This can make a sort of puzzle in wondering what path we might have missed, or what signs along the way we did not notice.

Head Rotations

(September, 6th, 2012)

This is an interesting piece in it's content which is the many various rotated angles of the head. It appears to be a reference for study, yet the individual heads are a bit loose and inattentive to detail. It would be interesting and further informative to see a more finely done execution of this concept.
